The 264 win mag was my father's rifle of choice and when I turned 13 he gave his to me. Since then it has become my favorite caliber. Now I have three 264 Win Mags. A mint pre-64 model 70, a later post 64 model 70 win, and my newest is a custom I built three years ago. I built it on a Win 70 post 64 action. I trued the action, installed a 28" shilen barrel, and a hogue stock with the aluminum bedding block. My best load is with H1000 and Hornady SST's. It seems to shoot the 140gr and 129gr equally well. It also likes the Berger VLD's as well. The 28" barrel will launch the 140's right at 3400 fps, and shoot's in the .4's at 100yds. On deer and feral hogs it has been devastating.
